Casey OKs bids for dump cleanup

LIBERTY - A $7,450 bid to clean up a dump site on Mason Creek was approved Monday by Casey Fiscal Court.

The bid from Ivan Greer Construction Co. in Columbia was one of three submitted. The other two were slightly higher. Work will begin immediately.

The money for the clean-up comes from a Personal Responsibility in a Desirable Environment grant.

County Judge-Executive Ronald Wright said he's also getting a bid packet together for the Smith Ridge dump cleanup.

He said the work has to be done according to specifications of the PRIDE program, which has provided $80,000 for the project.

Casey court sets tax rate
